Choosing a Lasting Career: The Job-by-Job Outlook for Work's New Age

Overview


People choosing a career have a lot of information available, but almost all of it presents only today’s situation.

Overview


People choosing a career have a lot of information available, but almost all of it presents only today’s situation. What will happen with specific work opportunities, though, over the next two decades, after which most of today’s new college graduates will not have even reached middle age? Choosing a Lasting Career answers that question. It starts by showing that while the jobs crisis is permanent and will not end with better times, careers will not be affected uniformly. The book then presents a broad set of factors likely to affect how work opportunities will fare over the next two decades. It provides a catalog of 506 different jobs, each rated in 11 different future-leaning categories. It is valuable not only for those seeking opportunities after graduation, but for others who want to invest their time and money in a long-term position that will not be swept away by automation, globalization, efficiency, or other factors we cannot ignore.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“A well-researched, fascinating look at jobs that will remain viable for the 20 years.  If you think being an accountant is a more stable long-term career choice than art director, you may be in for a surprise. People entering the workforce or considering changing jobs should take the conclusions presented in this book into account as they plan their careers.” – Susan Daffron, author of 14 books and president of Logical Expressions, Inc.

“It is about time someone paid attention to where we are going instead of where we are. In order to survive our society needs to be aware that the majority of jobs are no longer life time careers.” – Annalee Leonard, Investment Advisor Representative, author of It’s More Than Returns

“Dr. Huntington over-runs his headlights in the best manner. He thinks farther ahead–and deeper than most of us. Forget out-of-the-box; more like toss-away-the-box and take a fresh look at employment and your life.” – Doug Herendeen, Host, The 11th Hour, News/Talk 1240 WRTA, Altoona, PA

James B. Huntington is most recently the author of Choosing a Lasting Career: The Job-by-Job Outlook for Work's New Age. Before that, he wrote the Independent Publisher Book Award (IPPY)-winning Work's New Age: The End of Full Employment and What It Means to You, published in 2012. His 2007 doctoral dissertation, Prospects for Increased Post-65 Career Employment for the Baby Boom Generation, is the only book ever published on that subject.

He has a B.A. in sociology from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, an MBA from the University of Phoenix, and a Ph.D. in Applied Management and Decision Sciences from Walden University. Since November 2011, he has spoken on Work's New Age on over 130 American radio stations coast to coast. He has also been a business professor, teacher, and professional speaker, and has written scholarly works on leadership, organizational change, and human development. He is married and lives in Eldred, New York.
